355ml can. Given to me by someone who "heard I like 'crazy' beer". Rating this as an English IPA. I should've known better when he said, "They were giving it out... told me to take as many as I wanted!"
A - Clear, pale, fizzy. Looks light an American Macro with half as much color. Ugly.
S - Grainy adjuncts, slight hop aroma. Not "bash-you-in-the-face" hops, just... enough to let you know it's beer.
T - Sweet, light. May as well be macro swill, but has one slight aspect on the finish that lets you know it's not. Not necessarily offensive, but not at ALL complex. Just... boring.
M - Sparkling water. Seriously. There's no body whatsoever.
D - It's sessionable, and easy to drink... just not ANYTHING I'd ever go out of my way for. If it's this or Budweiser, I'm choosing this. That's about the only way I'd order one.
Not a good example of the style. Pass on this unless you're looking for an easy drinker. I'm dumping it :(

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for 2.35 CDN.
Appearance - clear pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head which recedes quickly and coalesces into a small white cap. Some effervescent bubbles rise from the centre of the glass.
Smell - weak grainy aroma. Some metallic mustiness in there to which is odd. Not a great smelling beer.
Taste - kinda like the nose, not much other than mild grains and a slight bit of bitterness. Really mild and pretty much an AAL crossed with and EIPA. There's just not much else there.
Mouthfeel - medium light body and soft carbonation. Would like a more lively mouthfeel.
Overall- pretty bland beer, lacking the crispness that good examples of the style usually have. I used to think this was a pretty good beer, and while inoffensive, there's not much exciting or different about this one. Still goes down easy enough on the first hot and humid day of 2014.
